New yacht on the horizon

I have a friend, Art Kelly, who is currently undergoing the sea trials for his new KIWI 280-C trailer sailer. If interested contact him at Kelly-Hanson Marine | America's Premiere MacGregor Yachts Dealer
Hull #1 is his, and there's no brochure yet, but he wanted to make it affordable, (not like a Macgregor though) and still exceptionaly fast. I've only seen the sailplan, and some early photos, but it's pretty exciting. I

How large a boat are you looking for?

The Telstar 28, Corsair 24/28/31, Dragonfly 800/900 are all pretty good boats, and would suite your requirements. However, I can't think of any good trailerable catamarans, except the R33, but that is a demountable, rather than a folding design, and as such, requires quite a bit of work to make "trailerable".

BTW, I own a Telstar 28... and love it...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
